Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #445

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week has started well!  The boys and I are at my parents this week and thoroughly enjoying our visit (and being stuffed full of delicious food and sweets!).  We hadn't seen my parents in 7.5 months and are so grateful to be able to visit with them now (after Covid testing of course)!  I've also enjoyed being able to make some cards with my mom!  Doesn't get much better than that!

We have a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week courtesy of Jen Mitchell!  Jen takes her cards to the next level in terms of clean and simple.  I absolutely love her clean backgrounds and pretty designs.  Head over to her blog to check them out!  They sure are stunning.
So I absolutely love the new Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP that will be available in our Mini Catalogue coming out at the beginning of August.  Fall paper and fall colours just speak to me and this paper is right up my alley!  I paired this fabulous paper with the Sunflower Dies and voila!  

I made a second card (also with the same Gilded Autumn paper and sunflower) just because I loved the first one so much! You can never have too many fall themed birthday cards can you?  At least I don't think so!!!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Mint Macaron, Gold Foil, Copper Foil
DSP: Gilded Autumn Specialty
Stamps: Beautiful Autumn
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Sunflower Dies, Nested Labels Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the cards that have been posted.  The Design Team knocked this one out of the park!  

Have an amazing day!
